Nejang (Tib. གནས་སྦྱངས་): the 24 exercises, with Christiana Polites

at Balance Arts Center, 34 West 28th Street, between 6th Avenue and Broadway

Nejang (Tib. གནས་སྦྱངས་) is a Tibetan healing yoga practice that literally means ‘cleaning the energy sites of the body.’ It consists of simple breath work, gentle physical exercises, and self-massage designed to improve the function of the sense organs and inner organs, balance the internal energy, open the channels, and relax the mind. It has roots in the Tibetan Buddhist Kalachakra tradition and has been prescribed to patients by Tibetan physicians for centuries. In this course, we will discuss the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine, including the channels and energies of the subtle body, and explore the key points of posture and breath used in Nejang. We will then practice the 24 Nejang exercises and explore their therapeutic and diagnostic indications.

Nejang is gentle and scalably-accessible to different levels of physical ability (there will be chairs in the classroom). Pure Land Farms director and SKY Press editor in chief Christiana Polites is an expert teacher and retreat leader who will guide us through practice and discuss applications for our personal health and happiness.

As always, if you are experiencing financial hardship or have any other potential obstacles to accessibility please contact Sarah at sorigkhangnewyork@gmail.com to discuss how we can help you attend this teaching.
